I’m sorry, but I have to do it. I have to mow the clover patch in my front lawn. I was all worried about the bees and wanted to give them whatever they needed to thrive, but then I realized something. Half a block away is a park filled with clovers. We are talking mass amounts that would seem like heaven to a bee. While my clovers looked like a tiny truck stop on the way to Disneyland or Costco, whichever. I will be planting more bee friendly plants along with the chicken herb garden, so I think I am okay to mow the clovers down.  I will be sure to shoo them away first.

Warning: No prior knowledge of Mars is required to enjoy this swashbuckling story of science, discovery, betrayal and hope. It is intended for a general audience.

Join the story in progress…

It’s 2015 and the Mars Curiosity rover rumbles along the crusty surface of Mars. On-board cameras detect something shimmering on the horizon. Engineers re-direct it to go investigate. When it finally arrives, the cameras capture shocking images of five-fingered fossils embedded in a mysterious boulder. Just as Curiosity attempts to transmit the high-resolution images, the power cuts out.

This discovery falls into the lap of an embattled American president who’s not afraid to use it to save his imploding campaign. Next to winning re-election, what do the lives of a few astronauts matter?

Ride along with Captain Adam Alston and his ragtag crew as NASA is plunged into a race to the Red Planet with little time to spare. The troubled astronaut Adam takes on the mission to save his family and his failed career; perhaps not in that order.

Nothing can prepare them for the split-second back-stabbing decisions they’ll have to make. Will a new breakthrough technology get them there in time? Will they find out the origins of the mysterious fossils?

The Young Demon Keeper
Bob Simms
4.8 Stars (14 Reviews)
Genre: Humor & Entertainment | Mythology & Folk Tales | Fantasy

FREE for a limited time

“This enjoyably light-hearted fantasy novel, trading on romance and humor abetted by magic, demons, witches, and spells tells the story of a naïve young Brit, Paul, who summons a demon with a spell he finds in an old book. Instead of getting a demon to serve as his personal slave, he gets Scarth, an irritating, stupid, voraciously hungry creature who loves ice cream but also consumes people. Paul quickly realizes that Scarth is not what he wanted and attempts to send him back. However, he is confronted by Lord Roath of the Inner Circle of Pain, Destroyer of Peace, Crusher of Souls. Lord Roath explains that he has the right to refuse to take Scarth back and Paul is stuck with him for the next 500 years or so. Paul heads to London, hoping to find someone who can help. It’s going to take a lot of help, but Paul finds it in “Dumpster,” a Pub’s arm-wrestling champ, Vanessa, a Wicca, and ebullient professor “Oz” Dawkins. What follows is a series of amusing adventures and misadventures that lead to a dangerous attempt to return the irritating but endearing Scarth — all of which may result in Paul’s exile to the underworld. This debut is reminiscent of Piers Anthony’s Xanth series (minus the puns) but with much the same adolescent innocence confronting adult situations.”

The Young Demon Keeper is a darkly humorous fantasy novel set in modern-day London.

When Paul summoned a slave demon to do his every bidding, he thought it would be really cool.Instead, he got Scarth, a hybrid that was as magical as a damp sponge but not as intelligent.His only talents seem to be invisibility and to eat: toasters, gravel, furniture, but especially ice-cream.Oh, and people.

Featuring demons, trendy priests, garrulous occult bookshop owners, muggers, publicans, evangelists, porters, witches, and wizards.

Oh, and then there’s the really strange characters.

Genre: Mystery, Thriller & Suspense | Romance

FREE for a limited time

This psychological suspense follows forensic psychiatrist Kate Myers who believes the killer of two teenage girls in Bigler County, California, is the same man who savagely murdered her twin sister over fifteen years ago. Working with a single-minded tenacity, she sets out to prove it.

Deputy Sheriff Ben Slater hides his personal pain behind the job, but Kate’s arrival in his county knocks his world on its axis and makes him believe in romance again. He wants to believe her wild theory, but the idea of a serial killer with the kind of pathology she proposes is too bizarre.

Together they work to find a killer whose roots began in a small town in Bigler County, but whose violence spread across the nation. A Janus-like killer, more monster than man, he fixates on Kate and wants nothing more than to kill the “purple-eyed girl again.”

As this crime thriller builds to a conclusion, Kate finds herself in grave danger, while Slater uses his forensics skills to discover who the madman is and where he’s taken her.

FREE for a limited time

Sometimes you need a little help.

Matt Carver was stuck on a TransAtlantic cruise with his entire family. And while he loved them all, the two week trip was going to kill him. Especially since his well-meaning mother loved to meddle in his personal life. The only way he could keep the peace, and his sanity, was to produce a fake girlfriend. Good thing he had just the woman for the role: Beth Riley, an adventurous beauty who’d already rescued him once.

And sometimes you just want to run away.

Beth Riley needed an escape. Her normal drama-free life was swimming in scandal after her sister announced she was marrying Beth’s ex-boyfriend. In order to distance herself from the wedding fiasco, Beth fled the country. It was her chance to sort out her feelings and reevaluate her love life. But the cruise wasn’t the fun filled break she’d been expecting. Luckily Matt, with his harebrained plan, provided the perfect distraction.

The whole ruse was supposed to be harmless, but things quickly turned intense when their made-up relationship and fake kisses produced undeniable heat.
